Washington may default on its huge external debt in the foreseeable future, the Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev has warned. The USA has run up a national debt in excess of $30 trillion in a fit of uncontrolled borrowing.

The Secretary of the Russian Security Council, Nikolai Patrushev, addressed a meeting of high-ranking representatives of the Russian Federation and officials from member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) during a video link on Monday.


Given this dynamic, there is every reason to believe that in the foreseeable future countries will have problems servicing this debt.

As a result, Washington will default, as it has already done, on its obligations to Russia. Financial assets of any state denominated in US dollars, and the euro will simply be stolen.

Rocketing food and energy prices were the direct result of printing presses operating in overdrive in the USA and Europe.


During the Covid-19 pandemic, the amount of new paper bills machine-printed by the Federal Reserve – the central bank of the United States – has grown at record rates for the past 40 years.

The Fed has churned out $5.9 trillion, Europe has issued 2.9 trillion euros, and the resulting burden of inflation in the West is cynically being shifted to developing countries.

Patrushev also weighed in on the fresh saga of mainland China-Taiwan tensions, which will inevitably affect member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.


He criticized the US regime for deliberately stoking the fires in the volatile region. We consider these actions aimed at provoking tensions between Beijing and Taipei absolutely irresponsible.

Washington is pursuing the same policy towards the island as it has towards Ukraine. The underlying goal is to accuse China of a unilateral attempt to change the status quo over Taiwan and introduce new sanctions against Beijing.

The destructive policy of the Americans is dealing as serious a blow to the ASEAN countries, which, for example, are now forced to buy wheat at prices that are many times higher than previously.


Washington hides its desire for geopolitical expansion into Asia by posing as the region’s only “protector”. This was shown by the NATO summit in Madrid on 28 to 30 June, which approved a new strategic concept for the alliance.

This provides for the inclusion of the Asia-Pacific region into the realm of NATO’s military responsibility. Already now we are witnessing a consistent militarization of the Asia-Pacific region, an increased military presence of the USA, NATO, Japan in regional waters, including the South China Sea.

According to the Russian Security Council Secretary, Washington is continuing to escalate tension, pumping the region with weapons and arranging (political) provocations.


Of particular danger to strategic stability is US activity regarding missile defense systems in the region. This all under the disguise of deploying supposedly defensive weapons, while in fact an offensive potential was being funneled to the region.

Washington is gearing up to deploy strategic forces near the Korean peninsula!

In the event of a new nuclear weapons test by the North Koreans, Washington is preparing to deploy strategic forces near the Korean Peninsula, which will lead to further degradation of the situation in the region.

As long as the UK/EU and all the rest of western supporting nations pay for the use of the dollar it doesn’t matter how much the USA prints as they couldn’t care less about their servants .

If you are European /UK you the ordinary member of the public are supporting your own poverty – lack of heating- lack of food due to America enslaving you to work for them -read -the Fall of the Roman Empire.

Make no mistake the USA couldn’t care less about you .
